Do you have ideas for songs but wonder how to structure them into complete songs? Do you hear great tunes in your head but not know how to fit them to chords? Are you puzzled by how weave a magical melody to match your lyrics? Stumped by limited rhyme possibilities or awkward phrasing?

About Carl

As far back as I can remember I have always enjoyed performing music. I can remember during my elementary school years how I would play drums during church service. Some days I would sneak in my dad's closet to play his saxophone. I began learning how to play saxophone in middle school and by the ti

Carl is a wonderful instructor. I may get a little overzealous at times, but he’s always patient and he indulges my imagination of being Kenny Dee. :)

GREAT INSTRUCTOR!!! Carl is very patient when teaching technique. I liked the approach he'd take to help me understand fingering and learning theory behind what I was doing. Just unfortunate covid 19 came and disrupted my in-home teachings.....I'd recommend him to anybody looking for an good instructor.

Great teacher for my 8yr old daughter. He is patient and explains things I'm a way that gets through to my kid. Highly recommended!

Phenomenal teacher! Rob simplifies advance techniques and organizes your lesson based on your personal goals. My lessons have been very informative but still always fun! I’ve improved significantly since our lessons began and have received guidance on how to make the most of my practice time on my own as well.

During this quarantine, having my lessons virtually is such a light during these challenging times, and they’re just as enjoyable as in person. Rob really is easygoing and has a great sense of humor!

Excellent teacher! Highly recommend! Feel like I’m going to learn so much and improve greatly!

Dan is really a great teacher.. firstly, he’s personable, friendly and creates rapport with the student, By asking your interests he makes the lessons about YOU by accommodating those interests and the WAY you want to learn.

I’m an adult and have no interest in traditional approaches to learning an instrument; I’ve been there, done that and found it not only terribly uninspiring (twinkle little star anyone?) but In every way overly difficult by trying to mix too many skills together at the same time. Before you even have a relationship with and “feel for” your instrument and have the technical skills to play it even half way decently, you’re trying to understand how long to hold a dotted eighth note! This is the reason a lot of people quit playing before they even get started…

Dan knew exactly what I was talking about, met me there and then proceeded to get me to do more in one lesson than I probably would have done in a week on my own, and in the way I want to learn!! He knows how to meet you where you are, find your self prescribed limits and then push you through them! He’s truly skilled in all the ways a teacher needs to be effective with a student!

Love old-school standards and musical theater? I am an internationally-produced, award-winning musical theatre composer and lyricist, and I'd love to help you learn how to craft a stylish song in the tradition of the 20th Century masters, and how to tell a story and develop characters through songs. I love working with students to deconstruct songs you love and figure out their structural tricks, both lyrically and musically, and can help you to figure out how to apply those structures in your own work. Can also work with you on music theory, notation and computer technology for getting your music written down.

About Kit

I am an internationally-produced composer and lyricist, with over 15 years of experience in musical theater and composition. I have studied at Juilliard and the Tony Award-winning BMI Musical Theatre Writing Workshop, and hold a Master of Music degree in Composition from Brooklyn College Conservato

I took a songwriting class that Kit taught at Schenectady County Community College, and it was a lot of fun and extremely helpful! She knows tons about all sorts of song genres both as a composer and a lyricist, and helped me understand a lot of basic ideas about music composition that I'd never really grasped. I would study with her again if she were back in town!

"I have been taking lessons with Jimmy for years now for music theory, acoustic guitar, singing, recording, and now songwriting. Its awesome to have all those options in one place. Jimmy has a lot of experience when it comes to writing songs and it shows in the way he teaches. He always shows excitement towards the new songs I bring to him, and encourages me to keep writing. He has taught me how easy it can be to create songs, while taking what he has taught me with music theory to push the song to the next level. The best part is when I decide I like a song, he has the ability to record it for me in his studio. This process of recording and listening to what you have created is invaluable. I always look forward to lessons with Jimmy and highly recommend him."
